SHARE CHART: WORLD CUP ’94

A field of 24 teams will fight for the most sought-after trophy in the world when the World Cup begins June 17. These 24 are the survivors of a qualifying draw Dec. 8, 1991, when 143 teams began 491 games. More than 31 billion will watch on television until July 17, when a championship game at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif., will determine the king of the soccer world.
